not want this kind of a confrontation. john boehner has repeatedly said so. but the president -- but the president is trying to force the appearance of a confrontation in order to magnify the political impact of a republican climb-down when it eventually happens, as it will. >> so daniel, let me ask you, ben bernanke came out today and weighed in on this whole thing in a way that might shock people because he said, you know what, to hell with the debt ceiling, although he said it in ben bernanke style. let me let him say it. >> i think it would be a good thing if we didn't have it. i don't think that's going to happen. >> so would it be better if we didn't have a debt ceiling at all? >> yeah, absolutely it would. this is a silly thing which ought to happen automatically because our debt is going to grow along with our economy from year to year. especially it's going to grow in times when we need to spend a little more to juice our economy. but you know, bernanke has very little credibility with the republican party because republican leadership last year actually sent letters to him

for president clinton and john avlon. michael, let me start with you. obviously that was a reference, a rather oblique one, to the gun control debate, but a reference it appeared to be. the fourth school shooting, though, in more than a month. nearly half the american people disapprove of what the president is doing on gun control. is it time now for less talk and more action from the president on gun control? >> well, you're right, that in that powerful speech yesterday, he used the words and the sentiments of the founders to argue for his agenda and one of the elements obliquely, though not explicitly, was gun control. now, he took the first step with those 19 executive actions, but the next step of course is in the hands of congress, where the nra has been one of the most powerful forces for years and years and years. the really interesting question is this. this horrible shooting today following on those other horrible shootings, of course we've had these before, but since newtown, perhaps things have tipped. now the media is paying attention. every time it's a new bit of informa
